The company has taken its time to make an appointment following the retirement of their Irish agent, Bryan Walker, in the summer.

Simon Prest, Sales Director at Orchard Toys commented ‘Bryan did a fantastic job for Orchard Toys over many years and we wanted to ensure that we considered all options before making an appointment, so that our Irish customers continue to receive the best possible availability and service, particularly given the complications that Brexit will create. We are thrilled to have entered into a partnership with Banaghans, as they share so many of our own values.’

Colm Banaghan said ‘We look forward to working with such a well-known and respected brand in the retail trade and a company with a track record of delivering on service and quality. We will safeguard the high profile of this range in Ireland and ensure maximum availability of product going forward.’
